Yankee Stadium Great Hall

Love the Yankees or hate the Yankees, they're always in the playoffs come October. And with that, it seems appropriate to pay tribute to the finer points of design with the luxury suites at the new Yankee Stadium.

In New York, America's past-time is all about luxury. With 56 luxury suites (compared to 19 in the old stadium), there's no shortage of big-ticket seating or big-ticket spenders. The Legends Suite (below) sets a muted mood in Yankees blue and white. Under cabinet lights and glowing frosted glass will help set the mood for any luxe interior.

The Audi Yankees Club is built for fans who want to keep their eyes fixed upon the field. European-inspired styling is sparse and functional with the right touch of class. In this case, turf centerpieces by floral designer Rachel Cho.

Everywhere you turn, there seems to be another suite. The Yankees Club suite (below) keeps things thematic yet elegant. Hi-definition screens play the game throughout the stadium, in case anyone forgets why they're at the ball park.

Top shelf amenities aren't just for the paying customers. With luxe tile finishes and frosted glass, the locker rooms are in step with the seven and eight figure salaries of the players who use them. Adding some bath bar lights in your home bathroom might help you feel almost as luxe.

At $1.5 billion, the new Yankee Stadium which opened in 2009, is a model of modern commercial design and the second most expensive stadium ever built in the world. However, with high-priced luxury boxes and VIP lounges becoming the new standard among stadiums and arenas, it might not be long before we see price-tags like this on a regular basis around the company.
